A spirit called (for some reason) “Matilda” is said to haunt this building. She was seen by at least one witness, and others claim to have either felt her presence or actually seen paintings and other objects move without explanation. Allegedly at one point local news reporters came into the building and started asking questions to “Matilda,” at which point the lights started going on and off without any explanation. The prevailing theory is that she’s an artistic type, attracted to the art exhibits often housed in this building.

  1. I have lived here long enough to remember that pond before anything was build on it. I used to fish in it. I can tell you, these stories are bunk.

  2. Next time call her Mildred. My great grandmother, Mildred Wenger, worked there, and she was an artist. She lived a short drive away, and her house was her canvas. She died in february of 2002 if I remember correctly.
